I first posted about Drake’s Hotline Bling video in October - click here to see that article. It was the goofy dancing, the turtleneck, and the body positivity. In the weeks that followed, Hotline Bling became the most memorable video of the year, the most memed video of the year. Full Story

You could take that title several different but related ways. First, Justin Bieber’s contrition. You remember? All those visits to Ellen? All those apologies? And the roast? He grovelled, kinda sorta, but that’s how it was branded. And the point? Well the point was a new musical direction, a new album. Full Story

He closed 2015 with In The Heart Of The Sea. Full Story

It’s no surprise that Jesse Eisenberg is a prickly dick -- there have been signs that he’s a condescending jerk since 2013. Sure, everyone says stupid things from time to time.

Anomalisa This is Charlie Kaufman’s sophomore directorial effort, seven years in the making and with an assist by Duke Johnson, who directed Community’s animated episodes. Anomalisa is a flat-out astounding film, where stop-motion puppets peel their faces off but also enact realistic and intimate love scenes, and it swings from one of the single funniest lines of dialogue this year to one of the most painful break-ups. Full Story
